Beautiful vineyard with stunning surroundings. We pre-booked the wine tasting with lunch which was excellent value for money. The food was tasty and fresh. The wine was smooth and complimented the food. We purchased all the wines we drank! I think that says it all. A lovely experience whilst visiting Tuscany.

Dear "LondonLidos",
I'm very thankful you have pre-booked because it's something we require for the vineyards tour with lunch. Sometimes it's full and we don't like to do large groups but keep the things pretty intimate.

Your review and visit are really appreciate. Grazie mille!
Fausto

We loved our visit to this lovely winery!! The vineyard tour was very informative, the lunch was delicious, and the wines were fantastic. We stayed in San Gimignano while in Tuscany. Although we had a car, we walked to the winery and had amazing views of San Gimignano from the country road that we walked. When we saw this place decided that we will stay here for at least part of our next visit. In the meantime, we are looking forward to the arrival of the wines we ordered.

Thank Ann S

We came for the lunch and wine tasting and really enjoyed our visit. Fausto was very personable and knowledgable and happy to share his experiences with others. We learned a great deal about making wine. Very interesting. Lunch was excellent as well and we left our car here and walked the 30 minutes to San Gimagnano which was a pretty town.
Beautiful sure and would love to stay here on next trip to Italy, it's very peaceful and beautiful setting. We would highly recommend to anyone.

its a new experience which i recommend for anyone who havent tried it, you go to spend the after-noon where they server you 3 kinds of wine as i remember with Salami and you end the awesome delicious lunch with the best dessert wine i have ever had! The staff are really helpful and they offer great hospitality as its a family business and they run it themselves.

I would highly recommend it regardless of the price tag

Dear "Ramy B",

Many thanks for your visit, next time perhaps you'll stay in our rooms.

We came for the wine tasting this afternoon and had a wonderful time. Fausto was very welcoming and knowledgable and gave us a great introduction to the basics of wine making. The good was excellent and the wines equally so. At 25 Euros per person, it was fantastic value and all in the shadow of beautiful San Gimignano. Highly highly recommended
